The third largest city in Russia and economic heart of Siberia, Novosibirsk is a rapidly developing city full of employment opportunities for young graduates.

Renamed successively Petrograd, Leningrad, and finally, Saint Petersburg, the city of Peter the Great was Russia’s capital city for over 200 years and remains its cultural heart.
